BARTEC ComEx flex

Press release   •   Apr 03, 2013 08:25 UTC

Meeting the demands of machine and plant engineering for more flexible solutions in control systems, BARTEC has further developed its proven control stations for Ex areas. The ComExflex system consists of four different control and display units for front attachment, all with clamps and a separate enclosure.

The units are designed for use with elements in potentially explosive areas in zones 1 and 21, as well as zones 2 and 22. The separately available, increased safety enclosure provides users with the option of installing the control and display units independently, subject to the specific conditions of explosion-protected areas. The function modules no longer have to be used with separately approved standard controls of increased safety requirements. This greatly simplifies maintenance work.

The simple installation of almost all cables and leads is ensured by the large Ex e enclosure and the one-hand fastening option of the bayonet system. The application using control and display units and the enclosure has the lowest installation depth on the market.

The control and display series can be used in a temperature range from -55°C to +60°C and has a long mechanical life.

BARTEC is a leading global provider of explosion protection. Its international customers mainly include companies from the oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries and from the field of energy. In the context of the strategic further development of the group, the focus is on the key areas of innovation and globalisation: The goal of the "BARTEC goes mobile" strategy is to release a wide range of explosion-proof tablets, smartphones and cameras as well as the associated software integration in order to provide the best possible service to the future market of mobile solutions for use in hazardous areas. In addition, BARTEC is focusing on consistent internationalisation and on the systematic expansion of its international network, which currently comprises a global network of 14 production locations, over 60 sales units and around 50 international trading partners.
